Dear Jesus

I am the Creator of the universe, yet I choose to make My humble home in your heart. It is there where you know Me most intimately; it is there where I speak to you in holy whispers.

Dear Jesus,

This is more than I can fathom—that Someone so great and majestic would choose to live in someone so small and sinful. My mind almost recoils at the thought of Your perfect holiness living in me. Indeed, I am an exceedingly humble home for You. It helps to remember that though You live in me, You also inhabit the highest heavens. Someday I will behold You in the courts of heaven, where I will see You in all Your Glory. I am thankful You are willing to live in my heart, because I deeply desire intimacy with You. However, I am weak: easily distracted by the noise of the world. Help me hear Your whispers in my heart.

Beloved, you do well to struggle with the thought of My holiness inhabiting your body. That shows Me you have some understanding of the absolute purity of My Being. Nonetheless, be assured that your sinfulness cannot taint My holiness. The influence goes the other direction: My righteousness purifies you! Delight in this blessed transaction, gratefully receiving My goodness.

You need stillness—outer and inner—to hear My gentle whispers in your heart. Find a quiet place, where the noise of the world is minimal. Then, focus your mind on this verse: “Cease striving and know that I am God.” Be still, let go, and relax in My Presence, while I commune with you in holy whispers.

But in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

[Hebrews 1:2]

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

[Ephesians 3:16–17]

After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. [1 Kings 19:12]

“Cease striving and know that I am God.”

[Psalm 46:10]
